International Volunteer Week (in French and English)
19 April - 25 April
Come and dig in with A Rocha France at Les Courmettes!
This April, the A Rocha France team at Les Courmettes invites you to join them for an international volunteer week – an opportunity to (re) discover the Domaine des Courmettes and be part of making it even more welcoming for our many visitors.
The Domaine des Courmettes is a 600 ha estate in the mountains above Nice, up at 850m. A week here offers you the chance to marvel at this beautiful part of creation, to meet people from all walks of life and to share times with the Bible and in prayer along with the Courmettes team.
No particular skill required! Just make sure you pack some work clothes and shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty!
Overview of typical day:
The day will start with a time of worship together, followed by communal work (around 4 hours per day) on things like DIY, outdoor maintenance, gardening, trail signage, etc. We will also offer some kind of outing or activity to allow you to discover the magnificent environment of Courmettes, as well as the option of some free time.
Two or three themed evenings will be proposed over the week; the other evenings will be left free to give you some space to be and process.
